Camping

Started around 11am and the first hour was more of a brisk walk through private property. We came upon large firs or pine trees belonging to a home. We headed into their gate, & a sign reading to put Poppy on the leash if she follows you. Past Poppy’s house you’ll keep walking and encounter a giant beautiful boulder/rock formation on the right, then a cylindrical rusted old tank ahead. The first trail break was a little confusing but we pushed forward. Found the hilly part of the hike across the little creek break. A little steep at first & it goes downhill - it’s killer on the way back if you haven’t worked those legs muscles in a bit. It sort of breaks at a bigger creek crossing area but the trail itself continues on the other side. This part was overgrown and lush with regrowth but doable. At some point the trail does get a little rocky and inconsistent, but so long as you follow the water into the canyon, you’ll find little paths here & there. We encountered a lot of balancing rock art, which we attributed as little trail markers left by a fellow hiker at some point. Made our own along the way as well. It’s best to take this part of the hike leisurely and enjoy the hidden wonder of this pretty canyon. Did some bouldering and dipped our feet in the water. Eventually we didn’t make it to the end, but turned around at the very first waterfall. The way back was tough but so very beautiful at sunset. Will be returning very soon.

First thing - Our end goal was Upper Lopez Campground, but we didn't quite make it there. We hiked this from East Cuesta "Mount Lowe" trailhead off 101. The first four miles are up the service road, which we frequently run. It is mostly gravel and a steady climb. There is more bike traffic than hikers, and our favorite place to let the dogs off leash. This trail is very exposed to sun and wind - wouldn't recommend in the summer if you're going midday. The next three miles we hiked downhill towards Upper Lopez Canyon Campground (well marked - big metal sign). The trail is beautiful - it narrows off through pines, and quickly turns into a lush riparian creek. It is unfortunately quite overgrown and poorly maintained, so the deer trails are distracting, making it tricky to stay on course. I would highly recommend offline GPS maps. The creek was flowing! (By California standards, I should add - it was only a few inches deep) We were able to filter water and camp by the creek. Fantastic first backpacking trip with the dogs. We will absolutely go again in hopes to reach the campground. Not much poison oak in the areas we hiked.

Off Road DrivingClosed

Trail was gated off and barbed wired around the sides, with a closed sign posted. There was some camping areas people before that and some areas to mess around some in the dirt, but I was on a big adventure bike and was looking to get some distance in. Does anyone know what time it opens up?

It’s now the end of November. I had no problems with bugs, saw no snakes, only a few birds. All of the other reviews are pretty accurate. The trail isn’t always super apparent, have a digital map downloaded. There is ZERO cell service pretty much the entire way (even driving in). I’d recommend a hiking pole, definitely good hiking boots — there are a lot of jagged rock paths. Bring plenty of water. Took me just about 3 hours to get to the top — yes there’s a fire road up there that’s accessible to cars, and just under 2 hours down. Really beautiful views once you hit the top. The last mile will drain you a bit, lots of loose soil and steep paths.

All the reviews are spot on. Bring a map, don’t bring small kids or dogs that don’t like to scramble, have fun! “trail” is kind of a suggestion once you get to the creek. Really beautiful, lots of scrambling towards the last falls.

Beautiful trail. Go to the right of the loop when you get there because it’s sketchy going up the summit from the left. There’s a couple of steep sections up and down before and after the summit so trekking poles are helpful.

HikingGreat!Icy

8 AM weekday start a week after first winter’s snow, from Nordic Base to Mount Pinos then Vincent Tumamait Trail to loop around and approach Sawmill Mountain from the west. Some snow already melted. Ground was 2/3 dirt and 1/3 snow and ice with majority of snow on trail already ice but easily handled with micro spikes. The trail was easy to follow because there was no fresh snow dusting for almost a week now and many hikers already reforged the trails, except for the west hook behind Sawmill which I recut myself (just hit Sawmill head on from the east and forget the loop, but the forest and snow meadows are nice to the west). There was almost no wind at Mount Pinos but the southerly wind was ridiculous 150 yards west at the hilltop table and the first switch going down Vincent Tumamait where you are exposed, much of it well over 50 MPH sustained. Same at Sawmill but not as strong. The wind was a bigger challenge than the ice, but fun.

We had a wonderful hike here. Easy for young kids and dogs. The drive was longer then the hike, but well worth it

HikingFeeGreat!

Followed the signs to the summit rather than the loop as described here in AllTrails. Following the signs for an out-and-back is a 5.87 mi to the summit and back from the trailhead, same 1600’ elevation gain. Great 360 deg views at the summit, but otherwise fairly uninteresting

So much poison oak the first half mile we almost backed out! Once you get through it it’s a great hike, but the poison oak is no joke.

First to Review

Where AllTrails says the trail starts is a narrow, paved road. It’s not suitable for hiking as there are no shoulders and many blind curves. No parking lot for a trailhead. This is not a hiking trail, even beyond the paved section of road.

Nice trail. Not recently maintained. Easy to lose at creek crossings or even random side trails.
